I think it's a common consensus that motorized things are simply cooler than non-motorized things. I would also think it’s safe to say that motorized floaties are better than non-motorized floaties.
The Motorized Inflatable Bumper Boat from Excalibur is pretty close to the most perfect water toy ever. It features cool looking steering wheels, a top speed of 3mph (WHAT!?...kidding) and it’s fully padded for comfortable fun.
I could imagine the Motorized Inflatable Bumper Boat being given to a child as a Christmas present and being used the most by the parents.
